Delta State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, former President Goodluck Jonathan, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vice Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi yesterday attended the funeral service of renowned politician, Chief Tony Anenih.
Also at the funeral Mass celebrated by the Arch-Bishop of Benin Diocese of the Catholic Church, His Grace, Augustine Akubueze were Chief James Ibori, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, Governors Godwin Obaseki, Seriake Dickson, Comrade Adams Oshiomole, Senator Patrick Osakwe, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, among numerous personalities.
The Mass took place at St. Anthony Catholic Cathedra, Uromi where the Bishop in charge of the Diocese, Most Rev. Donatus Ogun urged Nigerian politicians to stop politics of mudslinging.
According to the Bishop, Nigerians are tired of dirty politics, stating that as the 2019 general elections approaches, politicians should tell Nigerians what they can do to make their lives better.
“Nigerians want hope, they want to be told what the candidates will do to make their lives better, they are tired of hearing rubbish from politicians,” he said.
He emphasised, “learn to go to church and have the fear of God; always know that there is a God who is ready to forgive when you come back to Him.”
“Be generous, if you cannot spend what you can die and leave behind, how do you expect God to assist you? Heaven is real and we must work hard to enter heaven,” he said, noting that the late Tony Anenih was like a collosus.
The Bishop stated, “Chief Anenih who helped to give solutions to many people’s problems, he was a man of integrity, he gave people opportunities to live.”
